DPS is an international organisation of experts engaged in claims and risk management services to both the marine and non-marine insurance industries. Our professionals are experienced in a vast range of key areas enabling accurate and efficient investigations to be reflected in detailed and crystal clear reports. Their technical competence and social skills go hand in hand with a sense of urgency and a focus on solutions. The ongoing challenge of widening and deepening expertise in combination with a steady geographical expansion best characterizes the daring but down-to-earth spirit of our company. In order to ensure the best possible service to its clients, DPS has decided to open a regional office in Africa, more particularly in Senegal. This location, besides the benefit of being situated in the heart of Africa, also allows us seamless cooperation with our Antwerp office, from which all worldwide activities are monitored. Directly established in West Africa thanks to this office, DPS offers its clients direct and prompt service, without any intermediary and at a reduced cost
